SO SO DISAPPOINTED - Brilliance of the Seas - low-cost rip-off cruise.

Traveled with children

If you want to pay a lot for a low-cost rip-off cruise in a dated ship and very few activities - this is the ship for you. Six 1 liter bottles of water for 39 USD?? come on.

We were on a family vacation (4 families with young kids) and booked a cruise via an agent (who was supposed to help find the right ship) on a home for the elderly cruise with cheap food, very little activities and dated design.

If it was not a multi family trip I would have just disembarked with my family on the third day and fly back home. I would have never believed i am boarding a low cost rip-off cruise where if you want to have something eatable for dinner you must pay extra.

Port Reviews


Took a taxi to Nice.

not much to do.


had very little spare time. Spanish passport control took forever.

Florence (Livorno)

Took a taxi to see Piza , highly recommended

Rome (Civitavecchia)

Did it on our own, amazing city but 1.5 hours of drive each direction from the port


Plain boring
